I was really impressed with the value for money we got at Web Adventure Park and Creepy Crawlies, York. We paid less than £10 for 3 of us in and that included lots of indoor and outdoor play. Eric had an amazing time and for the price, you really can’t beat it. I would definitely recommend it if you are in the area or visiting York with children… especially in nice weather so you can make use of all the outside play areas. Here’s a little review of our visit to Web Adventure Park and Creepy Crawlies in York. 🙂

Things you should know…
Where is it?
Web Adventure Park is on Wigginton Road, YO32 2RH. We caught a bus from York centre just by the train station, a “creepy” ticket of £3 adult return. It didn’t take long at all to get there. There is a large free car park and overspill car park. The location is web adventure park is within an industrial estate.
How much does it cost?
Prices change throughout the seasons and depend on on/off peak, too, so there’s no one-cost-fits-all. Off peak adults cost £1.95, under 2’s £1.75 and over 2’s £5.50. Peak (school holidays) is typically £1 extra. The high ropes and summit is priced separately.
What ages is it suitable for?
Under’s 2 – 15 years is what they have on their website. We first took Eric when he was 1 and he had lots of fun, I would definitely say there is enough to do for under 2’s and if you go off peak this only costs £1.75! This visit Eric is 2 and a half and really loved it.
Food & drink?
There’s a licensed cafe (yes; it has alcohol!!!!) serving hot and cold food. There were vegan options including pizza! The play & eat deal we got for Eric included any kids meal whatever price so we got him a jacket potato & beans. The food was fresh, hot and I had no complaints about that.
What I thought: Web Adventure Park and Creepy Crawlies in York
It wasn’t our first time at Web Adventure Park, we’d been more than a year ago when Eric was younger. I had fond memories of the outdoor play but Eric was just that little bit too young for it. on the day we went, we had stayed overnight in York and I was undecided between going here or piglets adventure farm. With how long it took to get to both we decided on the closest with quickest journey time which was Web Adventure Park.
When you first get there the big indoor play centre is where the tickets are bought and they include both indoor and outdoor play. I was really surprised of the price…. less than £10 for all of us and that was with a play & eat deal, too. Indoor play was first, after Eric had seen it all we couldn’t have enticed him outside!
There’s soooo much to play with inside like football, big play frames with slides, tunnels and ball pits, toddler area, build a bear, crafts area, pretend village, disco room, ride ons and ball cannons. The actual big soft play frame is great because it has multiple ways of getting in so it doesn’t get boring and lots of slides. Included in entry, too, on top of everything else are free activities which change every day for both babies and toddlers… from messy play, music classes and sensory. We didn’t have time!
Inside the highlights were the slides, the disco room and the football. After lunch we headed outside and was spoilt for choice what to do first… ride-on area with scooters, bikes and such was really cute as there were all little for toddlers. And next to this was battery operated trucks.
The majority of the outside area is wide and open plan with paths going through multiple areas of sand and water play. There is soooo much sand to play with and buckets of toys/equipment to use. Eric was spoilt for choice and didn’t know here to go, plus he had it all to himself for the first hour until just one other family came out. It was very quiet!
Weather on the day was a bit windy, sunny but chilly so he couldn’t really do the water play to its full advantage; there’s a little area with splashing and squirter but it was just a bit too cold. He loved the sand play the best, the playgrounds and then we finished off by seeing the animals. The playgrounds are adventure playground themed, ranging from smaller stuff for toddlers to big rope bridges and there is a separate high ropes course.
How long did we spend there? All day, pretty much. I’d say about 4 hours. After playing outside we went back inside for more soft play fun, Eric was so tired but he really wanted to carry on.. after he left he fell asleep on the bus back into York. Good timing!
If you’re staying in York or live close by, I’d definitely recommend a visit here. there’s so much to do in York, though, it can be hard to choose! Web Adventure Park is so good value for money if you go during off peak, so definitely keep it in mind.
